Inaugural Address 

of 

Mayor William G. Bradley. 



Gentlemen of the City Council: 

It was proved without a question of doubt that it was the 
will of the people that, after serving them as their mayor for 
six years, that I still continue to serve them another year in 
that capacity by their nominating and electing me for the 
seventh time and with the largest majority but one that 1 ever 
received, without any soliciting on my part, for I did not seek 
the office or ask a man to vote for me, either at the mayoralty 
convention or on the day of election, and I therefore appreci- 
ate it all the more because it came not from one person or a 
few persons, but from the rank and file of all parties, acting 
freely. And now I wish to thank my fellow citizens for the 
honor they have shown me, and more particularly for their ex- 
pressions of confidence which they still place in me, which I 
assure you is of the greatest importance and gratification to me 
and I solemnly do pledge to them and to you, gentlemen of the 
city council, my best efforts, and, with your assistance, will 
give to the city the best administration of its affairs that the 
circumstances will admit of. 

The past administration has no apology to make and we in- 
vite the closest scrutiny into the condition of affairs in the past 
and as they exist today. We could not expect unanimous 
approval of our every act during the past two years. They 



have been eventful years for the city of Rochester, as well as 
strenuous ones for the mayor and every other city ofKcial, still 
I believe we will be accorded ths credit of having stood for 
what we considered to be for the welfare of our city, unswerved 
by hope of political reward, of fear of threats or tauiits of po- 
litical opponents. Still, on the other hand, the man who 
always has his own way without dispute must find life terribly 
monotonous, for one of the joys of existence is in overcoming 
opposition. This city has reached out aud added a great many 
improvements in the past two years. In fact, it has been very 
lavish in its municipal expenditures, all of which, however, 
they needed very much and are valuable public improvements 
and are such as our citizens should feel proud of. 

The demands of a growing city for improvements come a 
great deal faster than the financial condition warrants. It is 
particularly so, I am sorry to say, of our own city, for while 
we are growing in population, we are not keeping up to it in 
regard to the increase of taxable property, so as to get the 
necessary funds to be reducing our debt and to meet our run- 
ning expenses, that we ought to have. I fail to find a city or 
town in Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts or New Hampshire 
with the same comforts and conveniences that the city of 
Rochester has, and about the same number of inhabitants, but 
has from one to three million dollars more taxable property. 

Finance. 

The subject of finance is of the greatest importance to our 
city, for you have expended for permanent improvements in 
the past two years, namely : 

The new city building and its furnishings, $85,500 00 

New sixteen-inch water main, 49,000 00 

New steel reinforced concrete bridge at North 

Rochester, 2,000 00 

Amounting to $136,500 00 



You are growing in population, public improvemenls and 
conveniences faster than the increase of your income will ad- 
mit of. You ought to have at least five million dollars' worth 
of taxable property instead of four million and three hundred 
thousand, which you have today. It is not clear to your finance 
committee just what is best to be done, but you have these 
things now and the conditions must be met. The tendency of 
the times is to extravagance by individuals, towns, cities, states 
and nations. The following is a statement of the financial con- 
dition of our city as shown by its books : 

Financial Statement.

Water bonds outstanding, 170,000 00 



Highways. 

The question of how to keep our highways in a passable con- 
dition and at the same time make some permanent improve- 
ments is a matter of great importance to the public. We have 
had only $9,000 appropriated for our roads for the past two 
years and it is utterly impossible, with this amount of money 
to do near what the public demands on our roads and, at the 
same time, they are justified in their demands for better roads, 
and it would be very pleasing to your committee on roads, 
bridges and drains to fix every piece of road that they touch 
each year in the best possible way if they had the funds to do 
it with, but they have to distribute the small amount they have 
to work with to the best advantage they can after looking over 
the 150 miles of roads. I wish we might have $13,000 to 
$15,000 each year in this department; if we had we could bet- 
ter their condition. 

Public Library. 

The public library continues each year to be of more and 
more importance to our city. The reading room patronage is 
increasing from year to year, and I feel that it is doing a noble 
work and is a credit our city. For further details I will refer 
you to the report of the trustees of the library. 

Schools. 

The question of public schools and how to obtain the highest 
and best results is one that has interested the American people 
from the foundation of our government, and at no time in its 
history has there been that pressing need of such a high grade 
of excellence in its graduates as today, the complex duties of 
life requiring every one, so to speak, to be an expert in some 
line or other in order to insure success in life. The question 
of sufficient and proper accomodations for our schools is one 



of great importance to us today, for there has been an increase 
of thirteen per cent, of children for 1908 over the year 1907. 
You have added three new teachers and now you must add two 
more, making five new rooms and teachers, which means you 
will have to raise more money for the support of schools. But 
few people outside of those closely connected with the schools 
realizt; the work necessary to attain the end desired. The de- 
mands of this department cause the largest expenditures of any 
in the city and as the Mty grows the requirements of this de- 
partment will be more. I think our citizens in general are 
friends of the public schools. They recognize the necessity of 
their existence and are willing to give their support and, for 
the most part, they only ask that they be as efficient as possible 
and be conducted with due economy. 

"Water. 

This is one of the most important departments of our city in 
several ways. Pure water is one of the most essential things 
for any city's growth and prosperity. The public has been 
much exercised by the bad condition of the water the past year, 
while the state analysis of the water, made by the state chem- 
ist, has shown it to be very clear from impurities that would 
cause any epidemic of disease. Some of this trouble has exist- 
ed by reason of the light amount of rain we had in the spring 
and summer. Again, the superintendent of water, very anxious 
to better the condition of the water in the early summer, drew 
the water in the reservoir down six or seven feet in order to 
get at the lower gate and clean in out. The consequence was, 
we had no rain and the reservoir did not fill up and very low 
water was the result all summer. Your superintendent thought 
he was domg right and probably it wonld have helped it, if 
there had been rain to fill the reservoir again. If you remem- 
ber, in the year of 1898 we had a great deal of trouble with the 
water. Now I look for and hope that it can be made better 
again as soon as we have the usual supply of water. 



Fire. 

I need hardly say our fire department, under its efficient 
management, is one of the best. While it has not everything 
it wants and needs, it is in pretty good shape to take care of a 
fire. It has exceeded its appropriation the past year but it is 
not their fault. It was caused by the brush and wood fires 
which cost the department some six hundred dollars. Further 
particulars will be found in the chief engineer's report. 

Police. 

This department I cannot but feel is doing its work in a very 
satisfactory manner. Notwithstanding we are growing in pop- 
ulation and with a great deal of territory to cover, we have not 
added to the police force, and everyone knows there is no city 
in the state with the amount of inhabitants that Rochester has 
today that has so small a police force as we have. I will go 
farther and say that I do not think, go where you will, you 
can find a city of its size and with the same facilities in steam 
and electric roads running in and out of our city, with its 
streets and alleys as clear from drunken men or its police 
court records any cleaner than ours. I have been here thirty- 
three years and the first year could sit in my home and see on 
Sunday, horse trading, drunken men and women and fights. 
Now 1 wish to say a word in regard to the night police. Every 
little while some tax payer will say to me that they are not 
around at night when wanted. Now I feel it my duty to pro- 
tect a man when the conditions warrant. To begin with, the 
two night police commence at eleven o'clock to go their rounds 
and they have to continue that until four o'clock, rain or snow. 
That is about four miles travel for each man. There are seven 
boxes placed in seven different parts of the city. There is a 
dial brought to my desk every morning and by it I can tell 
whether they are on duty or not. If anything happens that 
either of them misses a wind, he is to tell the janitor why and 



9 



he writes on the back the reason, so it can be looked up. 
Neither one of them can get at this dial, so you see they must 
be on duty or explain why. There has been perfect harmony 
between the mayor and city marshal and every officer on the 
force and I am much pleased with the result of the past year. 

Janitors and Their Duties. 

There are thirteen miles of fire alarm wires, ten miles of po- 
lice wires and seven police clocks that must be kept in working 
order. A snow or electrical storm is liable to put either one 
out of commission at any time and they will have to work nights 
and Sundays to repair them. There are also 64 batter}' jars in 
the battery room that have to be looked after twice a da}', two 
instruments outside, whistle striker, Methodist church, six 
other strikers, namely : one chief engineer's house ; one, Co- 
checo engine house ; one, Torrent engine house ; one, Han- 
scorn's house ; two at main fire station. Every morning at 
8.45 the fire alarm must be rung in to test it ; two boilers to 
run and 75 radiators to look after in the winter season ; and 
the chemical, nine times out of ten, night or day, since the 
horses have been stabled at the house, is on its way to the fire 
before the alarm is done blowing. The above, I hold Will 
Hanscom responsible for. Of course, the other janitor has to 
help any and everywhere needed, and every lime the tramp 
room or lockup is used they have to be flushed out thoroughly 
with the hose. If not used, it has to be done twice a week. 
The walks have to be kept clean, and, in fact, a great part of 
the entire building must be looked after every day, and every 
time the opera house is used the two janitors have to work un- 
til about midnight wiih no extra pay. You have a nice build- 
ing, so pronounced by everyone who comes to see it, more 
particularly those from out of the city ; in fact you will find it 
from boiler room to opera house ready to take anyone through 
at any time, but it means work, care and expense. You can- 
not live in a mansion as cheaply as you can in a small cottage.

I speak of the work of the janitors for the reason of comments 
that are thrown out by some whom I felt did not quite under- 
stand the matter 

Financial Condition*. 

Now if you will bear with me, I will lay before you, as plain- 
ly as I can, the situation, and as briefly as possible.

Required appropriation from city, $28,660 

Attention should be called to the following figures. They 
are either from the U. S. census or from the official enumera- 
tion of children of school age as required by the state law : 

Year 1900. 
Population of Rochester, 8,467 

Children of school age, 1,295 

Percentage, children of school age, 15.3 

Year 1907. 
Children of school age, 1,485 

Year 1908. 
Children of school age, 1,675 



11 



Percentage, increase over 1907, 13 

Estimating the population of the city, from the percentage 
of the year 1900 and the school census of 1908, we have : 

Population of Rochester today 10,800—11,000. 

The most significant fact is the increase of children of 
school age during the last year of 13 per cent. 

There are at present in the city three schools having a total 
registration of over 55 each. They are the third and fourth 
grades at Gonic and the first and second grades at the Allen 
school. 

Such conditions are literally intolerable. 

Furthermore we have ten room with over forty-five regis- 
tered. 

To relieve these conditions we must open at least two new 
rooms. In the Gonic school there is a vacant room needing 
only desks and seats to make it ready for occupancy. 

In the city proper there are no vacant rooms. Moreover a 
room was taken away from the high school last September for 
the use of a new seventh and eighth grade, thus hampering the 
high school very much. The room occupied by the sixth 
grade at the Allen school is so poorly ventilated and lighted 
that it is not fit for use as a school room. 

The only permanent solution of these difficulties is the build- 
ing of a new school house. 

It may be possible to postpone such action another year by 
refurnishing one or two rooms in the old Upham street build- 
ing. 

It must be understood, however, that this would be merely a 
temporary expedient. Eventually the high school must have 
two new rooms and the sixth grade room in the Allen school 
must be abandoned. 

The new high school building cost S38,950.52 and there are 
notes out now against it of 811,600.00. Now I think that you 
ought to pay each year $3,000 of that, and then you would re- 
tire them all in 1912. 



12 

Deep Sewek Bonds. 
Bonded 1896 for S130,000, they mature in 1916. You paj 
356,500 each year beside the interest. You raise for that pur- 
pose this year : 

On the principal debt, $6,500.00 

Interest on the balance not paid of 

$45,500, 1,592.50 



S8,092.50 

So you see, those of you who live to see it will have seven 
to eight thousand dollars a year less to raise on this item alone. 
On your new city building bonds, you make the first pay- 
ment January 1, 1912, of $3,000, for each year to January 1, 
to 1918, and from January 1, 1919, to January 1, 1926, you 
are to pay $5,000 each year, and January 1, 1927, $4,000, 
which wipes out the debt. You see as soon as you get the 
deep sewer bonds paid it will not be so hard, and in this way 
of doing this generation is paying for and enjoying their per- 
manent improvements and the coming generation will take it up 
where this one leaves off and presumably will continue on with 
improvements. 

Police Extra. 
$1,000 more by reason of the drug store license, being $10 
each instead of $200. Where we got $800 in 1907, we got 
about $50 in 1908, and the police court fines being so much 
less than they used to be that now we have to appropriate 
$4,000 for that department. 

Water Bonds. 

Bonded 1892 for $200,000.00 

Y'"ou have paid since out of the 

earnings, 30,000.00 

$170,000.00 

During this time you have also made extensions that cost 
$59,028.57, which you have paid for also out of the earnings. 
Now I figure that you can pay $6,000 each year out of the 
earnings on the bonds and still extend the system as the 
demand calls for. 



13 

Now there i? todaj' SI 70,000.00 iu bonds out that mature in 
1922, and if you pay the $6,000 each year that I speak of until 
that time, you will then owe $86,000.00 on the water, which 
amount I have no doubt will be bonded for a term of years so 
that the water will pay for itself. Of course if the city should 
continue to grow and you should have more water takers you 
would be able to pay faster than the way I have mapped out 
here, unless some unforeseen things should happen. 

Now there are but two ways that I know of to get the neces- 
sary funds to meet the above expense. You can re-appraise 
your property and try to make it as near equal to every tax 
payer as the wisdom of your assessors will admit. If that 
was to be done it would seem to me there ought to be two 
assistants elected to assist your regular assessors and to be 
done in the spring and summer months, and it could not be 
done in time to help you for this year. Again, you do not 
know what may be done in the legislature this winter. The 
other way is to advance the tax rate enough to meet the de- 
mands, and when you get ready to do something else you can 
lower the tax rate at any time. 

And now, gentlemen, in conclusion, allow me to say that in 
all of these years that I have been mayor of the city of Roch- 
ester the uppermost thought in my mind at all times has been 
to try and do that which seemed to me for the best interest and 
the good of the city and its citizens at large. While I have 
made many mistakes, still I have done a great many things that 
at the time seemed to go against me personally, but I am will- 
ing to sacrifice myself to some extent if I can only get fairly 
good results for our city, well knowing at best I can do but 
little. I wish at this time to express my sincere thanks to the 
council of the past year for the courtesy and assistance, to the 
city clerk, Mr. Worcester, and the assistant clerk. Miss 
Roberts, on whom I called many times for matters of record 
and figures, which have at all times been cheerfully given, also 
to the city solicitor, Mr. Felker, for good advice and watchful- 
ness over the legal affairs of our city. Now, gentlemen of the 
city council and fellow citizens, with your assistance I promise 
you to do the best I possibly can in the coming year for the 
good of our city and its tax payers.

Report of Chief Engineer ot Fire Department, 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Gotincil : 

In rendering my report of the Rochester Fire Department, 
ending December 31st, 1908, would state that there have been 
18 bell calls; 18 still alarms, 14 brush fire calls, two at G-onic, 
two at East Rochester, 10 in city proper. 

The amount of property involved was as follows ; Valuation 
of buildings S65,584, insurance on same S41,200, loss paid 
§33,950 ; contents valuation of S60,500, insurance on same 
$27,125, loss paid S25,175. 

The forest fires have burned over 350 acres, with the loss 
estimated $1,250. 

There have been purchased and added to the equipment, 500 
feet two and one-half inch rubber lined double jacket hose, one 
deluge set, eighteen Cover's automatic respirators, one fire 
alarm box. 

I would recommend a permanently employed driver to stay 
at the central fire station for day and night duty, for quick 
attendance at fires within the city limits, also 1,000 feet rubber 
lined double jacket fire hose, also one steam fire engine. In 
my last report I recommended four new fire alarm boxes and 
but one has been purchased this season and I would earnestly 
recom.mend that the other three be purchased this season. The 
cost of the fire department for the year will be found in the 
report of the committee on finance. 

In behalf of the board of engineers, I will take this oppor- 
tunity to extend our sincere thanks to all the members of the 
fire department for the promptness with which they have dis- 
charged their duties during the past year. We would also 



43 



thank the members of the city governmeut, who have rendered 
the department any assistance during the yefir. 

Respectfully submitted 

H. C. HANSON, 
Chief Rochester Fire Department. 
December 31, 1908.

Instructions to Citizens. 

1. Upon the discovery of a fire, notice should be immedi- 
ately communicated to the nearest alarm box, the keys to 



44 



which are in the hands of all regular police, and in boxes near 
each alarm box. 

2. Upon the discovery of a fire, or positive information of 
a fire, break the glass in the key box, take key and unlock 
alarm box, pull down the hook once as far as it will go (with- 
out jerking) and then let go. Shut the door but do not try to 
remove the key, as it is locked in a trap lock and can only be 
removed by a release key, which is carried by each engineer, 
who will as soon as convenient release and return it. 

3. All persons giving fire alarms, are requested to remain 
by the box a moment, and if no clicking is heard in the box 
pull again ; and if you still hear no clicking, go to the nearest 
box procure a key and give an alarm from that. Remember 
that the firemen will come directly to the box which has been 
pulled, and be sure that some one stays at the box to direct 
them to the fire. 

4. Never pull an alarm for afire seen at a distance. 
Never touch a box except to give an alarm for fire. 
Give an alarm for no cause other than actual fire. 
Don't give an alarm for a chimney fire. 

5. Owners and occupants of buildings are requested to in- 
form themselves of the location of alarm boxes near their 
property. Be sure the alarm is promptly and properly given. 



Signals. 

Two strokes of the bell is the all out signal. 
Six strokes of the bell is for a brush fire, or a fire at a dis- 
tance, where the fire department will be needed. 
One stroke of the bell is the engineer's test. 
The above signals are given only by the chief engineer.

Report of Superintendent of Water Works for the 
Year Ending Dec, 31, 1908, 



To the Committee on Water Works : 

Gentlemen : — The seventeenth annual report of the super- 
intendent of water works is herewith submitted. 

Water was supplied to the city from the reservoir during 
the winter and spring up to the first of June when Round Pond 
was turned on and water from this source was u^ed up to Sept. 
12th. Before this date the water had been drawn so low in 
the pond that it was necessary to open the lower gate at the 
gate house so as to admit the necessary supply. Immediately 
after this was done the water showed evidence of algaj to a 
marked degree. The water was then taken from the reservoir 
and showed considerable improvement for about three weeks 
when the supply also began to taste and smell from the same 
trouble. November 1st the water in Round Pond was tried 
again but was found to be more objectionable than that in the 
reservoir and I immediately turned back into the reservoir 
supply. During the early summer I had drawn the reservoir 
down seven feet below high water as I thought it might im- 
prove the water to change it during this period, but the drouth 
came and I was unable to fill the same until late in the fall, 
which condition of affairs accounts for the presence of algfe in 
the reservoir, which I consider the better source of supply of 
the two, notwithstanding all talk to the contrary. After the 
water became objectionable the entire system was flushed out 
five times, but this did not seem to remove any of the 
objectionable qualities. 



98 



The analysis during this time bj the State Board of Health 
showed the water to be perfectly wholesome for domestic use 
and entirely free from bacillus coli or disease germs. A treat- 
ment of sulphate of copper would probably remove this ob- 
jectionable feature in the water to a large degree. I should 
never recommend a filter on this system as the water sheds are 
on the whole free from contamination and clean, and filtering of 
water from such water sheds as you now have is entirely un- 
called for and a waste of money. If any improvements are to 
be made on this part of the system I ahould recommend that 
the shores of the reservoir be dug out where shallow, and the 
entire shore ripraped to a depth of six or seven feet below high 
water mark and the brook from which the reservoir is filled be 
cleaned up for at least two miles and the channel cleaned out 
so the water would have a continuous flow to the intake. This 
would allow the water to be aerated more or less and remove 
some of the color which is very noticable at some seasons of 
the year. 

Following is the amount pipe, new service, etc., laid during 
the year.

The sewers have been flushed as usual and were found in 
good condition except Chestnut and eastern end of Summer 
street where the mains had become full of fiberous roots and 
stopped up. Your attention is again called to complaints of 
the residents on the eastern end of Portland street and vicinity 
in Rochester and the necessity of proper sewerage in that 
locality is essential to the health of the whole community.

Report of Tree Warden, 



To the Mayor and City Council at the City oj Rochester: 

I have tried to keep the trees in the public highway as free 
from the brown tail caterpillars as possible and no damage 
was done by them. But some private lots were badly in- 
fested and not a leaf was left on the trees the last of June. 
Let everybody destroy a nest when they see one, as it 
means from 150 to 300 caterpillars next summer from 
each nest. 

There are a great many people who think that by building 
fires in the street, which is very dangerous in a dry time, that 
the millers would fly into the fire and burn. But by Supt. 
Kirkland's report of the work in Massachusetts, I see that they 
tried light traps around arc lights and over 94 per cent, of the 
millers caught were male millers, and the experiment was not 
satisfactory. 

There are about fifty dead trees that will have to be re- 
moved as soon as possible or they will be dangerous to the 
public.

Tree Warden.

Report of Superintendent ot Streets. 



To His Honor ^ the Mayor^ and the City Council of the City 

of Rochester : 

Gentlemen : — 1 have tbe honor to submit the annual report 
of the highway department, together with a list of tools which 
are now under the care of the street commissioner, for the year 
ending Dec. 31st, 1908. 

There has been considerable work accomplished in the out- 
side districts with the road machine this year. The outside 
roads had been badly washed out by heavy rains, so we had to 
repair those that were in the worst condition. We gave the 
best attention possible to the Barrington road, the Swamp road. 
Ten Rod road, Meaderboro, and Four Rod road, also the road 
that passes the home of Charles Estes. 

The sidewalks have received the best attention possible. 
There have been new sidewalks laid in front of City Hall, one- 
half of that in front of Hayes and Dodge blocks, also some 
brick walks laid on Wakefield and Bridge streets. Consider- 
able repairs were made to sidewalks throughout the city, by 
the use of cinders, there being 500 loads used. 



Surface Sewers. 

At East Rochester we built six new drops, viz : Two on Main 
street, one on Portland street, two on Eastern avenue, one on 
Highland street. At Gonic we built two drops on Church 
street. In connecting these drops with the main sewer we used 
20 or 30 feet of 8-inch pipe for each drop. 

There have been five miles of bushes cut this year.

Report of Library Trustees, 



To the Honorable Council of the City of Rochester: 

Gentlemen : — The trustees of the Rochester Public Library 
herewith submit their fifteenth annual report, including the 
librarian's and treasurer's report, for the year ending Decem- 
ber 31st, 1908. 

During the year there has been no change in the policy or 
management of the library, but it has been the endeavor of the 
trustees to meet the demands of the public. This is shown by 
the fact that we are now supplying each month three branch 
libraries. The East Rochester library with 200 volumes. The 
Gonic library with 400 volumes, and in June we established a 
branch library at Meaderboro with 50 volumes. That the aims 
and resources of the library are being better understood and 
used is indicated by the establishment of the branch libraries, 
and also in the increase of the circulation over last year of 
6,550 volumes. The interest taken by the public in the 
library is evident by the following comparison, the 1907 report 
of the Dover library contains 35,270 volumes, the circulation 
was 55,813. The Rochester library contains 12,533, the circu- 
lation 1908 was 46,237. Considering the population of both 
cities it is evident from the circulation that the people believe 
in the library. 

During the year 481 volumes have been purchased. The 
trustees would have bought more books, but in order to keep 
the building in repair we had to reduce the appropriation for 
books and make some repairs. Painting and puttying the 
windows, repairing the slate on the roof and other repairs. 
But as one has said, "The royal road to culture is through a 
well stocked library," we hope to appropriate more money for 



205 



books the coming year. Hut we wisb to remind the public that 
the Rochester Public Library is without the bequests of other 
public libraries. The only bequest our public library has had 
is the $1,000 of the Jennie Farrington fund, the interest is used 
for the purchase of Juvenile books. In some public libraries 
the donors specify the particular class of books they desire pur- 
chased with the income of their bequest, and others give for 
general purchases. We trust that some of our citizens will re- 
member the public library and donate a sufficient fund to equip 
the library with good reading and with the latest and best lists 
of reference books. 

The trustees wish to express their thanks to Mr. C. A. C. 
Hanson for the four volumes of the Genealogy of New Hamp- 
shire given in memory of his father Dominicus Hanson and 
also to the Rochester Woman's Club, who, by their donation 
made it possible to secure for the library the pictures of the 
Library Art Club, and to all others who donated books and 
relics for the historical room. 

In conclusion the trustees would request of the Honorable 
Council that they continue the appropriation of $3,000 for 1909 
for during the coming year the insurance on our books will 
have to be renewed for three years, and we desire in some de- 
gree, to satisfy the demand of the public for good literature 
and also to make the public library an able adjunct to our pub- 
lic schools by purchasing the latest reference books. 

The trustees are gratified at the increase in circulation and 
attendance and wish to express their appreciation of the atten- 
tion shown the patrons of the library by the librarian and her 
assistants, during the year. 

JOHN YOUNG, 

Secretary.

To the Trustees of the Rochester Public Library: 

Gentlemen : I gladly submit to you, in this tifteenth annual 
report, the record of a busy year. Busy not only with its larger 
circulation, its additions, its agencies, its work with the children 
and the schools, but with its increasing reference work and its 
attempts to satisfy the demands made upon it. 

At the beginning of 1908 the library numbered 11,668 
volumes. During the year, 176 volumes have been added by 
binding periodicals, 246 volumes have been received as gifts, 
79 purchased from the interest of the Jennie Farrington fund 
and 402 purchased from the general fund, the total number of 
accessions 903. Thirty-three volumes have been discarded 
because unfit for use, four lost and one destroyed on account 
of exposure to contagious disease, making the entire number 
of accessioned volumes in the library at this time 12,633.

In the purchase of books due attention has been given to a 
proper porportion of the classes. Many standards have been 
supplied and a beginning made toward duplicating poor editions 
of those already on the shelves. By adding a few of these 
each year, the sets will soon be completed without noticeable 
depletion of the book allowance. 

The library has been opened to the public, 309 days during 
1908 and 46,237 books have been given out, 200 from the 
Meaderboro agency, 1194 from East Rochester, 1529 from 
Gonic and 43,324 from the library. A gain of 6550. That 
you may note the increase by classes as compared with last 
year the tables of circulation for 1907 and 1908 are given.

The people of Meaderboro corner have shown their appreci- 
ation of the little agency, established in June, through the 
efforts of Mrs. Charles S. Brock. She has assumed full charge 
of the work taking care of the fifty books left in her charge, 
giving time two days each week to their circulation and making 
all necessary reports and exchanges. Mrs. Brock reports a 
circulation of 200. 

It is pleasing to note the decided increase in circulation at 
East Rochester, 550 books have been sent to the agency, 50 
being exchanged each month. Seventy-seven people have reg- 
istered during the year, making the entire number of cards in 
use, 1430.

The resignation of Mr. Levi Meader at the Gonic agency 
was very much regretted, but his successor, Mr. George H. 
Marsh, has taken up the work with much enthusiasm. During 
the year 1150 books have been sent to Gonic and the reports 
show that 1529 have been given out and 28 new cards issued.

The children's room at the library has attracted many little 
visitors during the year and the books and magazines at their 
disposal are very much used. The assistant who has this room 
in charge, surely has her hands full during portions of the day 
looking after the wants of the little ones and keeping the 
larger ones out of mischief. 5G51 readers have been registered 
864 more than last year. 12,713 books have been given out 
during the year an increase of 1264.

The books for this department have been purchased entirely 
from the interest of the Jennie Farrington fund. The children 
have a bright, attractive room and good books but it has been 
impossible to do anything in the way of decoration. Many of 
the children come from picturelesa and bookless homes. What 
an opportunity for some man or woman to give something of a 



209 

decorative nature to beautify the room. Indeed the kind 
offices might be extended to other rooms in the building. 

Although no record is kept of books or magazines given out 
in the building an attempt is made to keep the number of 
readers and students. The number for 1908 was 11,787, 2121 
more than last year. This gives but little idea of the extent 
to which the rooms have been used for it is safe to say that a 
large number of the readers are never counted. 

The reference work has been a large part of the duties of 
the year. Often the students have filled every chair in the 
room and then have overflowed into the reading rooms. This 
has been almost entirely personal work and hands and brains 
of the entire staiif are kept busy, explaining the uses of the 
reference books and hunting up stray bits of information. It 
is one of the uses for which the library exists and the result is 
worthy of the effort. The additional reference books pur- 
chased have been very much appreciated. 

The larger part of the work with the schools has been done 
with the pupils. Only 332 books have been given to teachers 
for school use. 

A beginning has been made during the last few years, 
toward a historical and genealogical department. Some val- 
uable gifts have been received and a few things purchased. 
The genealogy of New Hampshire given by Mr. C. A. C. 
Hanson, in memory of his father is a most valuable acquisi- 
tion. Mr. Stephen D. Wentworih, has added to the collection 
an old account book used in connection with the ''Wolfe 
Tavern" which at one time was located on Haven Hill and is 
said to have been the first tavern in Rochester. This is of 
great interest locally, because of its old names. Mr. John 
Meserve has presented many interesting old things, among 
them a sword cane, bearing the initials "G. W." Tradition 
says, that it was owned and used by George Washington, also 
an Indian spear head, which he ploughed from the ground near 
Gonic hill, and several old papers and books. Mrs. F. C. 
Hayes of Wolfeboro has given an old paper. Cases are very 



210 

much needed where such things can be carefully preserved. 
Il seems a pity that all the interesting relics might not be col- 
lected from the attics of Rochester before it is too late and 
placed in the library. 

The Rochester Woman's club have made it possible again 
this year for the library to have access to all the pictures of 
the Library Art club. These are both instructive and enter- 
taining and would be greatly missed. Many useful and valu- 
able gifts have been received aside from those already men- 
tioned, as it would be impossible to mention them individually 
your attention is called to the list appended. 

In addition to the regular work of the library and the duties 
which each day has brought forth, an inventory of the entire 
library has been taken by the accession number. This has 
been a long piece of work and has meant the handling of every 
book in the library but the result has beeu very satisfactory. 
All but eight books have been accounted for, errors have been 
detected and a new system for keeping discarded books inaug- 
urated. 

Never in the history of the library has the work gone on so 
smoothly or with quicker or better service. The public has 
been courteous, patient and appreciative and tbis has served 
to encourage and inspire to greater zeal and more untiring 
effort. It costs somebody something to furnish these privi- 
leges which are often accepted with such thoughtless indiffer- 
ence and a simple thank you means much to the tired attend- 
ant. 

I wish at this time to speak of the splendid work of the 
assistants and acknowledge my indebtedness to all who have 
assisted in the work of the library during the year, especially 
those who so kindly helped during the long illness of one of 
the assistants. I also wish to thank the trustees for the con- 
veniences which they have provided for carrying on the work 
and for their courtesy and encouragement. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LILLIAN E. PARSHLP:Y, 

Librarian. 

Rochester, N. H., December 30, 1908.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF 
SCHOOLS. 



To the School Board of Rochester : 

There aie many matters that claim atteutiou in this report. 
Two subjects, however, fu-e of such preeminent importance 
that they should not be dwarfed by having included with them 
matters of much less moment. I refer to the growth of the 
schools and the consequently heavily increased expenditures 
in the school department of the city budget. 

Each year persuant of the slatules of the state, ;i census of 
children of school age is taken by enumt^rators employed in the 
city. In 1907 the census showed a total of 1485. In 1908 
it showed 1675, an increase of approximately 13 per cent, in 
one year. The average membership of the city schools in 
1907-8 was 1117. At present it is 121S, an increase of 8 per 
cent. 

This increase is and should be a source of pride to us and to 
Rochester. At the same time it confronts us with a serious 
problem. There are, at present, in the city three rooms having 
a total registration of over fifty-f5ve each. There are ten with 
a registration of over forty-five each. 

I wish that I had at my command words that might give you 
some idea of the relative quality and quantity of instruction re- 
ceived by a pupil, who is one of 55 under the tutelage of a 
single instructor. 1 need not refer to the strain on the teacher 
herself in attempting to keep her pupils on a par with those of 
her colleague, who has but 35 or 40. There have been within 
my experience in this city three instances where a teacher has 



6 

broken down under the strain and retired in discouagement 
and invalidism. 

And I should like to express right here my tremendous ad- 
miration for the teachers, who without a whine or complaint 
grapple with the problems we put before them and achieve the 
success that is theirs. 

Now for practicable measures looking to the relief of these 
most pressing needs. 

The overcrowding of the mixed third and fourth grades at 
Gonic will be remedied when you have fitted out the 6th room 
in that building. When that is done the facilities will be suf- 
ficient to accomodate the pupils there for some years to come, 
the more so on account of tlie large number who leave school 
at the earliest age possible. 

In East Rochester, by the establishing of a new room last 
September, you have provided ample room for present 
needs, but the remarkable increase in the population of Ward 
one, as shown by last fall's census, is a warning that may have 
to be heeded in 11) lU. 

In Meaderboro, the increase, though small, is serious as in 
that school the work of the entire eight grades is done by one 
teacher. I recommend that the mininum age of entering this 
school be reduced to 5 years and that pupils be allowed to en- 
ter only on alternate years, thus eventually reducing the num- 
ber of grades taught in any one year fiom eight to four. 

In the cit}' proper conditions are more serious. The Maple 
street school is already filled to its capacity. The School street 
building had so many pupils last September that some had to 
be transferred to the Allen building where there are fifty- six 
in the first garde and forty eight in the second. 

It appears from these figures that for these grades two new 
rooms must be provided. Moreover, the sixth grade room in 
the Allen school is unfit for use because of poor light and ven- 
tilation. Again, as the principal points out in his report, more 
room is needed for the high school. This makes a total of four 
rooms that should be provided for another year in addition to 



those already in use. This means a new building. Such a building 
is of course out of the question for a year but it must be ready 
for occupancy in September, 1910. In the meanwhile by utilizing 
the Upham street building and by continuing the cramping of 
the high school, we must make shift to house the pupils as 
best we may. 

Now as to finances. The largest item of expense is teachers' 
salaries. At present under the rules of the board these salaries 
are graded according lo length of tenure of office beginning 
with S360 and increasing yearly until S450 is reached. I 
should like to see the minimum raised to S370 that being an 
even SIO a week. I should recommend that the board investi- 
gate and adopt a system based not wholly upou tenure but at 
least partially upon mej-it. 

A considerable increase in ihe item must be had this year to 
meet the expense of the new rooms established. These new- 
rooms will also cause an increase in the fuel item. I would 
call attention here to the resumptiou of the practice of paying 
for the winter's coal out of one year's appropriation instead of 
carrying part over into the following year. It will be noted 
that the items of incidentals and books and supplies have been 
much smaller this year than before. This low cost cannot be 
contiaued in the case of books, and supplies, without seriously 
crippling the schools. I hope however with better care taken 
of books already in use we may still keep this item below 
$1,500, the figures of two years ago. 

In conclusion I will say that the expressed purpose of the 
school board of keeping expenditures within the sum appropri- 
ated, has been kept and that we finished the year with every 
bill paid and with a small balance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANDREW JACKSON, 



REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL OF THE 
HIGH SCHOOL. 



To Mr. Andrew Jackson, SivpQrintendent of Schools: 

The total registration for the year ending June 1908, was 
184 pupils. At the close of the fall term of the present year 
the same number of pupils had been registered, and the 
attendance during that term was 97 per cent of the average 
membership. In order to maintain this comparatively high 
attendance two things are necessary. First, the co-operation 
of parents is needed in the effort to keep pupils in school. 
Second, teachers should not lose sight of the fact that it is 
their duty to make school work attractive. It is a well known 
fact that pupils learn most readily when their attention is fixed 
on the lesson. Undivided interest and good progress go hand 
in hand with regular attendance at school. 

There are few matters of more vital importance to the 
management of school work, than sweeping changes in the 
teaching force. This problem, confronted us at the beginning 
of the year. Of those teachers who were in the school last 
year Mrs. Allen, alone, remains. To her is due in no small 
measure the smoothness with which the work of this year has 
started. Her vital interest in the work of the school has 
appeared in kind suggestions, in prudent advice and in the 
influence of a personality which makes for good in every pupil 
who comes under her instruction. Four of the six new teachers 
come here without experience. Mr. J. D. Drew, a graduate of 
Rhode Island State College, has the work in the Science 
department, and has charge also of the school athletics. Mr. 
Roland E. Chesley, of Dartmouth, suceeds Miss Myrtle Young 



9 

in the first two years work in Rhetoric and English composi- 
tion. Mr. Chesley has assisted by organizing a school Glee 
Club. Miss Miriam Fifield, of Mt. Holyoke College, comes to 
the work in French and Latin. Miss Dorothy Fitts, of 
Dorchester, (Mass.,) succeeds Mr. A. W. Wing in the 
Commercial department. Miss B. T. Lull t<^aches Latin and 
German. Miss Lull is a graduate of Mt. Holyoke, and has 
studied in Germany. Her preparation enforced by previous 
experience as a teacher makes her especially well fitted for her 
work in the school. 

We have in the High School six members of the class which 
was graduated last year. At first thought this fact may seem 
to indicate a favorable condition. If this school were equipped 
with teachers and courses for study beyond that offered regular 
pupils, and if graduates not contemplating a college course, 
would select studies in special preparation for business they 
might profit by a fifth year in the High School. But for the 
pupil who intends to enter college and who comes back to 
review woik which he should have done properly during his 
course, such study seems a needless waste of time. Moreover 
this loss it not confined to the fifth year alone. During 
preceeding years the pupil feels that he will be graduated with 
his class on an implied condition that he return and make up 
deficiencies. This state of affairs, so far as it exists, is 
unquestionably wrong. By a reasonable amomnt of study for 
four years the average pupil can get that preparation which 
will enable him to take up profitably the work of a college 
course. 

In view of the fact that many of our pupils have not kept 
their woik up to the requirement for each year, it has seemed 
best to neglect social functions. During the fall term the 
High School held but one entertainment, and that required 
little preparation. A debating club consisting of members of 
the High School holds a meeting once in two weeks for practice 
in parlimentary rules and debating. Living questions are 
discussed. We realize the need of drill in public speaking and 



10 

the fitness of such training in High School work. Until the 
beginning of the second term of this year no part of our 
schedule has been devoted to this exercise, but opportunity has 
been given in the English classes for speaking before the class, 
and among the ??enio)s, work in systematic debating has been 
conducted. 

During the fall term the High School received an appropriate 
gift in the form of a picture for the Assembly Hall. This gift 
came from the class of 1907, and was formally presented to 
the school by the President of that class. Interest of this 
kind which the alumni show in the school cannot be too highly 
appreciated. 

An effort is being made to gather data concerning the 
occupation and progress of our graduates. The purpose of 
this movement is to stimulate those who have left as well as 
hose who are now in school. It is hoped that such data may 
bring those who are now in active life into closer relation with 
our present interest and this insures better prospects to those 
twho are about graduate. 

A word should be said here in regard urgent needs in the 
High School. Some slight changes in the Courses of Study 
should .be made before the beginning of another year. The 
State Department requires us lo have for school use reference 
books which are not found in the school or in the Public 
Library. They should be provided at once. 

I wish to thank the School Committee, the Superintendent, 
and my fellow teachers for earnest support and many helpful 
suggestions.

Classmates, school for us has ended, 

Four long years together, passed, 
Years of joy with labor blended. 

Now we leave them for life's tasks. 
As our thoughts turn toward the future, 

Which in mystery's veiled from sight. 
May the paths which lie before us. 

Each and all be ever bright. 
May the lessons learned in school days. 

Ever keep us in the right. 
And fond memories cling around them, 

Cheering us with glad delight. 
Now the hour has come for parting. 

Let us lift our hearts above. 
Praying God to guide and keep us 

In the ways of truth and love.
